    Pros

    Great Team Work, from the office support to our primary care nurses to our awesome CC team manager! I am very fortunate to work with the best for over 7 years. Their dedication and love for what they do for our hospice patients and families abounds!!!!

    Cons

    The company needs to recognize per diem workers as equally as part time and full time workers, especially when their per diem worker 40 plus hours with as much loyalty and dedication as everyone else. Just saying.......

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the good work and honor your loyal, dedicated per diem workers too. You honor your volunteers, so why not your per diem HHAs and nurses?

    Pros

    Personal Time off was very nice. HR shows in many ways they are about their employees.

    Cons

    As a company gets bigger, it becomes harder to reach all team members to find out how things are not working and how things can improve.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with the hospice business, it's what you know and what you do well. Current leaders in the HME division really don't get it.

    Pros

    VITAS Innovative Hospice Care is a corporation which started very modestly in Florida and has expanded across America. Sometimes there are some growing pains and stress with growth, but overall it works. I have worked for other hospices, and this one gets it right! Patients and their families do come first!

    Cons

    As with any employment, it's the team you work with that determines how much you enjoy or do not enjoy your time at work. Thankfully at VITAS Hospice in LaSalle, our team cares about each other!

    Advice to Management

    Celebrate and reward the great team you have already, more! Team building / bonding means less cost in money and time to hire and train new individuals. Give more bonuses, more luncheons at team, etc.

    Pros

    VITAS has been around for 30+ years and it shows in the way they train their employees, offer vast resources on how to perform your job better and how to problem-solve. I work in their corporate office in Miami and they have Town Hall meetings with the President that keeps you informed on the company's growth and achievements. Also, they have a nice recognition in place for outstanding employees and even recognize you for the length of time you've been employed by the company.

    Cons

    I can't think of anything negative, everyone that works at VITAS is very nice.
